Facebook uploaded 1.5m users’ e-mail contacts without their consent probably to create shadow profiles - Only YOU can make a difference here…


Facebook harvested the e-mail contacts of 1.5 million new users who joined the site since 2016 and did so without their consent.

The social network has said it “unintentionally uploaded” the e-mail contacts after asking some users to e-mail passwords when signing up to the site as a way of verifying their identity — a practice widely criticized by security experts.

According to a report by Business Insider, those who did enter their password then saw a pop-up message telling them their contacts were being imported to Facebook, without asking for permission to do so first.

The incident is the latest in a growing list of data privacy breaches to hit the social network.

Facebook said the flaw had been caused by a feature which had allowed users to confirm their account and import their e-mail contacts at the same time; however, a redesign in 2016 had removed some of the language which explained this but was still uploading contacts in some cases.
